Update: Turns out the teasers were about an ASUS Windows 8/Android device after all, and even Bluestacks got tricked into thinking the "big transformation" teasers were about them. You can find more info about this device, called Transformer AiO, here.

Remember a few days ago when ASUS got everyone's hopes up with teaser videos that began excited rumor-churn about a possible dual-booting Android/Windows 8 tablet? Well, it turns out that the videos in question were meant to tease a new partnership ASUS has formed with BlueStacks, creators of the renowned BlueStacks App Player (which we reviewed back in March).

Making it perhaps a little too easy to access Tosh.0's full "online experience," MTV Networks (on behalf of Comedy Central) recently released the official Tosh.0 app to Google's Play Store, adding a suggestion that users ditch their computers, because after all, "opening browser windows is for government workers and exchange students."

The app allows users to immerse themselves in a Tosh-centric world of internet interest, reading posts from the Tosh.0 blog, checking out Tosh's latest caption challenge, and watching videos from all seasons of Tosh.0, including everything from Web Redemptions to Video Breakdowns and more.

Facebook's Android team pushed out an incremental update v1.9.4 today with "improved performance and various bug fixes." Just what those improvements and bug fixes are will remain a mystery - the only useful part of such changelogs is we know what they didn't do in this release.

So, what did those who updated think of increased performance?

Business as usual then - got it.

Facebook on my Epic Touch has never seemed particularly slow UI-wise, but pulling data takes uncomfortably long even on Wi-Fi.

Internet video is the future. It's hard to argue that. The mobile landscape is chaotic, though, and figuring out which services have what shows or movies can be a complicated task. Viewdini, from Verizon, wants to be the digital age's TV Guide, aggregating show info, availability, reviews, and discovery into a single app. Search for the name of a show or movie and you'll get info about it, as well as where you can watch it.

Google has just dropped a Google Translate update into the Play Store, bringing it into a new ICS-flavored age. The most obvious change is the switch over to a Holo interface complete with clean drop down menus, an action bar, and better speech recognition. For the weary world traveler, things also get easier with wider language support.

The app performs sometimes imperfect text translation between 64 different languages. The app can also listen and transcribe spoken words in 17 languages to save you keystrokes.

Some people are simply amazing with remembering faces. I'm not one of them. Evernote, creator of the widely-renowned note-taking app of the same name, has set out to help me with Evernote Hello. I guess you guys can use the app too. The app is a visual contact list that puts your contacts' faces front and center. It even allows you to take down notes of how you met someone, and tie notes in your Evernote account to your contacts' encounters.

If you spend an unhealthy amount of time looking for event tickets, then you've probably been to Ticketmaster a time or ten. And if you've been to Ticketmaster, then you know just how many events are covered under its umbrella. 

However, if you're not sitting at your computer when you hear about an event or the mood strikes you to buy tickets of some kind, you were pretty much out of the loop until you made your way to a PC.
